Life Story: Parentís Charter

Our Families Forward Project in West Sussex, supported eight families with disabled parents who were involved in family court hearings.

This project produced a Parents Charter and a list of recommended changes for public services to provide better support for parents.

We now place this charter at the core of all our work with parents:

  • All parents should be listened to.
  • All parents should be respected and valued.
  • All parents should be involved in planning for their children.
  • All parents should feel welcomed by services that support them.
  • All parents should be able to have support to be good parents.
  • All parents should have the support they need if they are going through family courts.
